have you checked to see if there was any electrical signal reaching the motors? also check the wiring for cuts or frays. check fuses. Fuses are an easy check you can do.

Thumbs up

I already did that. The fuses are fine, there is current. The rubber boots on the solinoid are shot. If I spray them out with WD-40, I can get them to work for a while then they die.

My right rear died a while back but now it works so I'm not sure what it was.
